He has given me a new song to sing, of praises to our God. Now many will hear of the glorious things He did for me, and stand in awe before the Lord, and put their trust in Him.
(Psalm 40:3 TLB)
O my precious God, In this act we will see what real love is: it is not our love for God but His love for us when He sent His Son to satisfy God’s anger against all who sinned against Him. Dear friends, since God loved us as much as that, we surely ought to love each other too. For though we have never yet seen God, when we love each other God lives in us, and His love within us grows ever stronger. We will live under the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered by the God who is above all gods. Our old sin-loving nature was buried with Him by baptism when He died; and when God the Father, with glorious power, brought Him back to life again, we were given His wonderful new life to enjoy.
When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun within and through their relationship with Jesus Christ, and through the Holy Spirit of God; we have been given a new song to sing, of praises to our God. Now many will hear of the glorious things He has done for us, and they shall stand in awe before Him and put their trust in Him.
Don’t be hard on yourselves because you listen to the false voices around you. Don’t put yourselves down. Listen for His voice because He is depositing a new song in you. He will bring us to the pinnacle of our destinies where we will shine for years to come, and the dark, despairing world we left behind, will have no more holds upon us because we abandoned it’s influences, and it no longer has it claws in our flesh. We will walk in freedom singing new songs – of praise and thanksgiving to God who died for us and transformed us with Jesus Christ our precious Lord. Amen.
